Waffle Flower Challenge June/July 2014

I've been a bad blogger this past week, but you're rewarded today with not one, but TWO posts.  I'm pretty excited about this one too.  My sweet friend Nina Yang recently started her own company, Waffle Flower Crafts.  She has started a challenge, and I'm lucky enough to be one of the Design Team members!

The challenge will run for two months and each month there is a sketch as well as a technique challenge.  You can choose to create a card for either of those categories, or combine them.  Enter as many times as you want.  Here are this month's challenges:

I chose to use the sketch for my card and stayed quite true to it.  I used softer colors, mixing gold and silver as well.  The sentiment, bow and stars from the Bowtiful stamp set and the circles are from the Flower Circles set.  

I used Delicata for the gold, Tsukineko Brilliance Silver for the silver, and stamped the sentiment with Verafine Smokey Grey.  

I wanted to add some sequins, but I couldn't find them, which would not surprise anyone looking at my craft space, so I used a bit of that silver foil cardstock with a confetti punch instead.  

I hope that you will play along with the challenge!  I'll have another card to share next month.  Here are all the pertinent details for you:  

The Fine Print
Pick a category or combine both to create a NEW project. Since this is our first challenge, we consider all projects using our products as NEW! We welcome all project types and crafters at all levels to join us.

To Enter:
Add your link(s) to the Link-up Tool on the Waffle Flower site. Remember to include a link to this post in your post (on your blog) or in the description of your photo (in an online gallery).
Here are the basic rules to play along:
  • Use at least one of Waffle Flower Crafts products on each entry. List the product name in your blog post. If you use an online gallery (Flickr for example), list the name in the description. This is especially important when you used a product in a clever way that might not be obvious to people. Our team will be looking for them but please help make it easier for them.
  • Enter as many times as you want. If you have a blog, please include the graphic of the category you are entering in and link to the challenge post. This is to help your readers and crafty friends to find us and join the fun!
  • Combine up to 3 other challenges if you want. We look forward to seeing what wonderful projects you will create with your own unique formula.
